    Just wanted to see people put a number to it.

    Canelo when he faced Floyd:
    Age: 23
    Record: 42-0-1
    Last 5 fights: Austin Trout, Josesito Lopez, Shane Mosley, Kermit Cintron, Alfonso Gomez

    if he is 100% prime now he was
    50% -60ish%

    after fighting Floyd he leveled up to 75% was a beneficial L & proper education.

    make a poll please

    Probably around 70 per cent

    Floyd was also at that age deteriorating and also at say 70 per cent

    Canelo got schooled regardless

    40-50% max.

    He's a completly different fighter today.

    - Power (wasn't really a puncher or Knockout artist at 154)
    - Size & Strength (He's fighting between 160 and 175...come on...he was a 154/147er when he fought Floyd)
    - Footwork (still not the greatest footwork on planet but 10 times better than against Floyd)
    - Experience

    50%. He's fighting like 16 pounds higher and as far as 23 pounds higher.

    Floyd fought Clenelo in the middle of his Showtime contract, so you know the timing was very strategic.

    I think that's a good response, I'd probably put them both at around 75% of their respective late 20s peaks.

    He was probably only fighting at a power level of just over 9000....fingers crossed he can hit ssj3 before he faces beterbiev........

    The bigger question is what % of top form was pbf in that fight. He was 36 clearly past it and in his 5th weight class.:deal: I dont remember people saying what % of top form was pbf at 21 when ne fought hernandez for the lineal championship at 130.
